    Students please make sure you are submitting your work to me either through TEAMs, REMIND, or email

     

    This week we will begin our study of DNA and Inherited Traits. We will begin with understanding how traits are inherited and learn about Gregor Mendel the Father of Genetics--->the D in Dograce!

    Sixth Grade Magnet Science 

    Week of May 4th through May 8, 2020

     

    Students please make sure you are submitting your work to me and checking your grades as I am trying to enter grades daily.

     

    This week we need to finish all our work for Mitosis and Meiosis. Then we will do a quick study of ASEXUAL REPRODUCTION. Students will compare asexual to sexual reproduction and understand the benefits and limitations associated with these types of Reproduction. I will be posting Wednesday an open notes quiz on Mitosis, Meiosis & Asexual Reproduction that you have one week to complete. Then we will start our studying of the structure of DNA and how traits are passed on from parent to offspring. This is the D in DOGRACE-> REMEMBER all living things have DNA (genetic info) that makes them unique individuals within thier species!

    Book Reading and Questions on Asexual Reproduction: Students read and answer the questions on each page throughout the reading. Then complete the unit review qtns at the end of the reading assignment.

    Students please make sure you are submitting your work to me! The best way is either via e-mail or remind app or TEAMS.

     

    This week we are studying Meoisis which is how complex organism that must reproduce Sexually make the sex cells either egg or sperm. Without reproduction all species go extinct! Also... make sure you take the Mitosis Quiz shown below and submit back by this Friday, May 1, 2020

     

    This unit is covering the R in DOGRACE which is reproducing to carry on the species! 

    Students answer all questions throughout the reading in the book and all review questions!

    Please work on your disease brochures and submit to me as you complete them. 

    (I may send you feedback before I actually assess if I see you have empty spaces or your info in incomplete)

     

    THIS WEEK WE ARE STARTING TO STUDY HOW CELLS REPRODUCE! 

    This is the Growth and Development part of DOGRACE this explains how living things make more body cells for growth and repair (not reproductive cells)

    Some variations amongst individuals in a population are advantageous while others may not be ---> these allow some individuals of a species to better survive to then reproduce while others do not = Survival of the Fittest!
